Making a gift of money or assets can be a valuable exemption from Inheritance Tax
There are various additional ways to use your annual gift allowance, such as gifting to an individual up to £3,000 per tax year.
Using income to fund the contributions to a life policy held in trust, parents can each give up to £5,000 to each party of a marriage/civil partnership. Additionally, a lifetime gift of capital designed to maintain a dependent is exempt under certain circumstances.
Gifts to charities, political parties or for the public benefit, such as universities, national museums, and the National Trust are also exempt.
